I never thought I’d get to write these words of this blog: the
following is NSFW (not safe for work) -- unless you’ve got a lenient workplace
and a decent set of headphones.
That’s part of why I’m a day late in posting
this recording; I waited until I got home to check it out then spent the whole
evening debating whether I could post it here! Titillated enough yet? Here we
“Leck mich im
Arsch,” K. 232 was a naughty little novelty when Mozart wrote it ca. 1782.
That’s the part you where you needed the headphones at work.
If you’d like a recording of the Mozart sans ICP, I’d recommend Mozart
Unexpurgated (it does also appear in the Complete Mozart box set issued
by Brilliant Records).
My favorite album of naughty classical fun is The Art of the Bawdy Song by the
Baltimore Consort (many thanks to Dr. Paul Borg, who introduced a
group of wide-eyed undergraduates at Illinois
State University to this album, along with Florence Foster
Jenkins, Anna Russell, the 1812 Overture at West Point,
and other great classics…)
As for ICP and White, classical connections do not play out
in the rest of this release. According to Pitchfork:
The B-side will be "Mountain
Girl" (which concerns itself with "tall tales about a shotgun
wedding, meth problems and moonshine").
